Photo hosting for developers

I spend last week searching for photo a hosting service for developers, and ended up using none of them. I always tend to build things that needed to be built, and out-sourcing everything else. It helps to move things fast, well, sometimes.

I just wanted something simple, a service that can host my photos, serve them, for free or at lower costs.

After reading this StackOverflow question, and another question, I realized that I was not alone struggling to find a service capable of cropping/resizing/etc.

Here goes some of what I found:

Following writeups influenced my final decision:

  2. I needed flavors(including speed) of those services, but I am not ready to pay for bandwidth for things I code and host on my own server.
